My daughters (ages 6 and 4) just informed me that ‘When we’re teenagers all we want to do is be cheerleaders.’ I had to inform them that we’d have to move back to America for that to happen, as there aren’t cheerleaders in New Zealand.

I like to follow and support fellow knitters.

New Zealand is amazing in so many ways. But I’ve never been an expat before, and I’m still missing people and pets and foods and things in America. But the short answer is yes, I like it here.
how hard was it to move?
Logistically? Not too hard for me since I’m married to a Kiwi. Pretty much automatic permanent residency, after filling out a million pages of forms and paying some money and jumping through some hoops. More details can be found at my blog Kiwis Have Wings.
And mentally, moving wasn’t hard for me either. Besides college in Connecticut and a semester abroad here in New Zealand (where I met said husband) I had never lived anywhere else besides Boston. I was ready to try someplace new.
Was driving my 17 year old nieces (identical twins, natch) around and Destiny’s Child’s Jumpin’ Jumpin’ came on the radio and they were all, “OMG! This so takes us back to primary school!!!” And I was all, “OMG, this so takes me back to when I was working at an internet start-up that went bust in 2001!!!”
